Apple's new Macbook Pro with Touch Bar has just as many other new designs had a mixed start. The reception among professional users have been cool (so cool that Apple executives admitted that when they revealed that a new Mac Pro is on the way), while sales have broken records.
Poor, or rather very patchy, battery life has been the big problem, but now reports 9 to 5 Mac on a potential new problem that Apple may need to grab.
Users report namely about strange popping sound from the 15-inch model. It should sound something like "when you press the sides of a plastic bottle." Some users see no pattern at all in snapping, while others think it's much more common when the computer is heavily loaded and the fans at full speed.
Some who reported the problem to Apple and other forums are speculating that the problem is with the hinge, which somehow has been damaged by heat. One writes that Cohen can get the computer to snap immediately by pressing the center of the back of the screen down at the hinge.
So far, Apple's answer to users who have submitted their computers varied; some have received components or entire computer replaced while others have been told that your computer has a small dent and damage thus not covered by the warranty.
I think we can expect that this will not be the last we hear of the problem .
